Topic: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

Am attempting to start a thread where people post oop emo records of cool bands. I'm mostly interested in shouty stuff but post other stuff if you want. Maybe we can discuss it too! The emoisdead archive has helped me find loads of stuff I had not heard of. There still seems to be a lot of other stuff not in this archive and I am obsessive compulsive trying to discover as much as possible. Having things in one place is really useful too rather than the occasional thread hidden away on the band section of collective. Even if it's just okay or completely generic I'd like to hear it. So if you have any stuff you think people might not have heard of or see some cool blog posts please post them in here. Thanks!

I'll start it off - found this upload randomly - Your Majesty and Rugtip. REALLY solid stuff and whilst it's got typical influences to some extent both bands seem to have a bit of originality and do their own thing.

P.S. I see Andy has made comments on the blog post!

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

Anyone got an upload to the Your Majesty LP? Would like to hear it before I think about buying it - haven't looked on Soulseek yet to be honest.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

Have you got Lauren Hospital? Upload on the way!

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

The description for YM was weird - Ministry vs Helmet! That's what made me think twice about just buying it.

Not heard of Lauren Hospital so would love that. And any other stuff, cheers constant!

Is this aimed at me? I don't understand.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

i remember these users being slightly obsessed with coming up with mp3 of obscure emo bands

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

I was playing around with last.fm on the 360 last night and a band called "Totoro" came up under the midwest emo tag, it sounded a bit like the Van Pelt, anyone know anything about them?
I think the song title was in Russian.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

They recently did a split with Optimus Prime - you can find it on a blog but I shouldn't link to it as it's in print - not listened to it yet.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

I'm PMing you the Lauren Hospital stuff now, Oli.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

I have that YM LP, but I can't even remember what they sounded like. I bought their record when they played at our house because they were super nice rather than being a good band.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

Dude I just read some of your older posts - what is this Superpowers tape that you spoke of? have you ever ripped it?

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

I did a while back. If you search Superpowers, a bunch of tracks should show up. It was Troubleman Unlimited's first release. I think catalog number .5.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

I can find loads of articles mentioning it but not the actual thing sad

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

I guess haven't posted the whole thing. I'll have to get on that in the near future...

sinker is still around and doesn't post as much. he made the emoisdead mediafire page.

sleight of hand end up being a prick, i think i changed this password so he couldn't log in.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

yeah the emoisdead archive was the last i heard of sinker.

what about sapila ?

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

he turned up on here again very briefly a few weeks ago.

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

and what about the C-Z encyclopedia ?

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands

Re: Random / obscure 90s emo bands
